Mountaintops and Valleys – prompt from the Daily Post

Mountaintops and Valleys

Describe a time when you quickly switched from feeling at the top of the world to sinking all the way down (or vice versa). Did you learn anything about yourself in the process?

_______________________________________________

I was in high school and wrote a short story for class and it got an A+ and I was thrilled so I entered it into a contest. Well I got a rejection slip and it knocked what little confidence I had right out of me. I refused to write after that for many, many years. Now I finally am all over that and people read my work all the time. I keep telling myself that even Stephen King got rejection slips.

    Even though everyone gets rejections, it still stinks! It’s hard not to take it personally, but we have to keep at it 🙂
